Referees are an issue with high school sports season being so short. A message from our Athletic Director Mrs. Sanchez reports: Riverside Christian cannot secure referees on Tuesday, May 18. So, we HAVE to move our game to Wednesday, May 19th. Bus will leave WEDNESDAY, May 19 @ 4:00pm. EXPECT many more changes (a possible schedule overhaul). This is NOT what anyone wants, but the YVBOA does not have enough referees to cover all the games that will be played in the span of 5 weeks across multiple classifications. Our league has a meeting tomorrow morning to discuss game date changes. I will communicate those changes to you as soon as I can.

LEGO Kits will be used as an incentive for students to attend summer school. Those students who sign up for and successfully complete the whole summer program will receive a LEGO kit. This is offered as a gift from the LEGO Company to Schools to encourage STEM in elementary schools and was a result of a relationship that the superintendent has developed with the company.

Interviews have been a major part of this past and coming week. Principal interviews for White Swan High School will begin on Monday and continue through the week with four candidates invited to campus. The interview will consist of classroom walkthroughs with a debrief meeting; an interview with High School Staff, a formal interview with the interview Committee; and a less formal follow up interview with the superintendent. We are sorry to see Mrs. Smith leave our district, yet we plan to hire the best and most qualified candidate who will provide a vision for the White Swan High School and a solid plan for providing high levels of learning for our students each and every day!

School will be open in the Fall! What it will really look like in the Mt. Adams School District is still under consideration, yet the official work from Olympia is that the District will be fully open and State mandatory attendance laws will apply. “Washington authorities said Thursday all schools in the state must provide full-time, in-person education for students for the 2021-22 school year and that students and staff will still be required to wear masks. The Washington state Department of Health released guidelines that included mitigation efforts they said were designed to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The mask directive could prove controversial, as the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday moved to ease indoor mask-wearing guidance for fully vaccinated people. The new federal guidance still calls for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, but will help clear the way for reopening workplaces, schools, and other venues — even removing the need for masks or social distancing for those who are fully vaccinated.” OPB News, May 14, 2021
